Synopsis

One Fox is a stunning counting book and thrilling farmyard adventure from the brilliantly talented debut author and illustrator, Kate Read.

One famished fox with two sly eyes is on the prowl . . . three plump hens had better watch out!

The rich, close-up illustrations with an Eric Carle feel take the reader to the heart of the drama in this exciting story set in a moonlit farmyard. With something different to count in every picture and numbers in text and numerals, learning numbers from one to ten has never been so much fun.

Kate Read is a graduate from the prestigious MA in Children's Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. Her luscious artwork is a mixture of collage, printing and drawing, creating layers of beautiful texture and detail.

Lovely, potent, brightly colored illustrations . . . Little ones will eagerly count in subsequent readings as they also learn new descriptive vocabulary and cheer for the brave hens. A classic scenario flips the script in this engrossing adventure.
